Sumardagurinn fyrsti, welcome ‘ode’ to the Sun in Iceland


Iceland, travel together


Iceland; ultimate spectacular holiday and vacation|CRIMSON TAZVINZWA||

Today marks the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere – the longest day of the year and, for most of us on this side of the globe, the first official day of summer. (Iceland, being Iceland, celebrates the first day of summer in April, an old Viking tradition.) What better way to celebrate this day than with Reykjavik’s Sun Voyager. Though it looks a bit like a Viking ship or maybe a fish skeleton, sculptor Jón Gunnar Árnason created it to be a dreamboat and an ode to the Sun. Sounds good to us. Join us in celebrating the Sun today.
